$100 Room Challenge | Week 5: Organized Modern Shed Reveal

 I can't believe my 8th (!!!) $100 Room Challenge is already over! It took me three weeks to really get going on this project but once I started painting it really began to come together. In just 5 weeks we went from dingy and brown to white and bright! Before you couldn't even see the floor because it was covered in stuff, now the floor is almost bare. So much room for activities! I actually had so much room from adding the pegboard wall that I brought in stuff from my tool closet in the house. 

Week 1: The Shed Interior Befores
Week 2: Cleaning & Painting the Shed Interior
Week 3: Painting, Painting, Painting
Week 4: Installing the Peg Board Wall

5 weeks ago this shed was a grimy and non-functional place. It was where we put things we didn't intend to get to because going in here just made you want to take a shower.

I mean can you even believe this is the same space! It just reignites my creativity and makes me want to start on the next project.

Installing the pegboard really was the best use of this space. It gets everything off the floor and is completely customizable. If I get new tools or get rid of something all I need to do is move some hooks around.

My dad gave me this awesome tool box that I knew would fit perfectly in the center of the wall. However, I do need to find the key because I may or may not have misplaced it. I used some long hooks and put some pieces of scrap wood up to create a makeshift shelf to put my spray paints on. 

One of my biggest priorities was having a large space to maneuver the lawn mower in and out. 

Another hand-me-down was this 5" vise from my granddad. I was going to get rid of it because I didn't know if I'd ever use it but once I cleaned it up I knew it just had to stay. 

I also wanted to create a space for our outdoor sports stuff. All of our discs for disc golf were stuffed in a bag and getting them out to display really makes them more accessible. Next to that is paint space which I wasn't planning on doing, but once I had so much extra space it just fit perfectly.

My original plan was to put shelves back on each side, but, I ran out of money for this $100 challenge. So, after this reveal I'm going to spend my October project budget putting those up and customizing this space even more.

That's a wrap! I grabbed a few extra hooks at the end so I went a few dollars over, but I round up in my accounting so I'm still happy. There is so many great participants this round so be sure to check all of them out below.

Budget Used
Behr Paint "Ultra Pure White" — $25
